MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- While Arizona's Damian Miller plays on a division champion, you won't see his name or signature on the merchandise.

Miller broke ranks with the players' association during the 1994-95 strike, participating with replacement players during spring training in February-March 1995. But he insists he wasn't a replacement player because he never joined them in actual spring training games, the Tribune newspaper, which serves suburban Phoenix, reported Monday.

The players' association has refused membership to all players who it views as replacements. As a result, he doesn't receive licensing money from the union, which usually amounts to $50,000-$100,000 annually.
